Compensation

Starting pay is $8.00/hr for first time interns.

Returning interns receive a $0.25 pay increase for every year of service. Example: This is Alexander’s 3rd year working with us so his pay is $8.50/hr. 

Summer interns can expect to work between 15-30 hours per week.

Training

This year’s training will be held June 7-8 at the Ben Hogan Learning Center at our Rockwood programming location. This will be followed by a mini-camp June 9-11 to get everyone back into the swing of things! Training will include administrative setup, review of risk management, health, and safety policies, child safety training, PLAYer level coach training, and creative collaboration on camp activities.

Schedules

Camps will run from June 14-18 through August 9-13, with the exception of no camps June 28-July 2 in observance of the July 4th weekend.

We are flexible with schedules, however we do ask that you notify us of any dates of absence as soon as you know them or no later than 1 week beforehand.
